Sure, Meghan Markle has always been stylish, but now that she’s on the verge of becoming royalty, fans around the world are clamoring to get their hands on anything she wears with a bit more urgency—and that includes the dress she wore to the private Christmas celebration with Queen Elizabeth II. She may have preferred a $97,000 Ralph & Russo couture gown for her engagement photos, but for a gathering with the future in-laws, Markle went to Club Monaco.
You may have missed it under that Sentaler coat, but Markle opted for a very low-key, off-the-rack dress for the holiday function at the Windsor family’s estate known as Sandringham House. The midi-length burgundy velvet style, dubbed the Tay, features tiered, ruffled short sleeves and a cinched-in waist with a belt that ties into a bow. The deep red hue and soft details made it an optimal fashion choice not only for the holidays but also for some face time with Her Majesty (who is well-known for her own stylish clothing choices).
Oh, and it’s still in stock: Markle’s Club Monaco dress is currently going for $239 (down from $298). Sure, it’s still expensive, but it’s not $97,000 couture expensive.
If you’re looking to grab a piece of royal fashion, do so as soon as possible. Otherwise, you could be left in the dust. Markle did help sell out this $670 bag in mere minutes, after all.
